I have a bad feeling about this.
To me this is a terrible idea. It would mean no genuine conclusion to the KOTOR story arc, no engrossing, epic single player story KOTOR is known for, and, as someone else stated previously: EA + anything = CRAP. Recently I am sick and tired of all MMOs, so to see one of my most beloved RPG's shoved into a genre that is overcrowded and devoid of inspiration, published by a company I despise...well it just doesn't get much worse than that.
The day this is confirmed may be among the darkest in gaming history. Sigh....
